First.

Good evening. 
This is my first post, which is slightly daunting but also quite enjoyable. 
Hopefully I'll keep up with this on a day to day basis! What I'll post is anyone's guess really...a mix of cats, clothes, make up and cooking. With a few of my ramblings thrown in for free! Sound good?

I think we should get cracking with a picture, since it's the start. 
Today, I set about making Cupcakes. Yes, those delicious little mouthfuls of wonderment. I am quite the cook (if I say so myself) when it comes to meals (my teas* are cracking!) but desserts are very much my downfall.
So, instead of giving up, I'm trying and trying again and today I had a success! Brilliant.
Here are my little masterpieces:



My mum has had four, so yes, they are as yummy as they look! :)

Ingredients.
The cake:
  • 100g butter
  • 100g self raising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g caster sugar
The topping:
Ok, I cheated a little, but hey ho!
  • Betty Crockers Vanilla Buttercream
  • Pink Colouring (to add to buttercream)
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Edible pink glitter.

Ta Da!
